Hello! I'm Crystal, aka darkly dreaming. I'm 34 and live in the Midwestern USA. I've been back into PSP since November of 2010. Prior to that I tried PSP for about a year back in 2005 or 2006. I've just recently begun trying my hand at tutorials. If you try one of my tuts and would like to show me what you made, please email me at darklydreaming33@hotmail.com. Happy Tagging!

PostHeaderIcon Freya Boo, Animated

This tutorial was written by me on 10/9/11.
Any resemblance to other tutorials is a coincidence.
Click on image to view full size + animation.

1) Tube of Choice. I'm using one by Freya Langord-Sidebottom. This is a PTU tube, which can be purchased at PSP Asylum.
2) Scrapkit of Choice. I'm using Kit#9 from Scrap It Studio, available here.
3) Mask of choice. I used AS_Halloween Mask2, available on the Creative Misftis forum here.
4) Leave animation here. (If this is your animation please contact me so I can give you credit).
5) Font of Choice

Let's get Started....

1) Open new canvas 700x700.
2) Flood fill Raster 1 layer with white.
3) Open element 54. Copy and paste as new layer above our white background layer. Apply our mask. Merge mask group.
4) Open main tube. Copy and paste as new layer. Arrange to the Right side.
5) Open element 33. Copy and paste as new layer below our main tube. Arrange more towards the left. See my tag for placement. Adjust. Hue and Saturation, Colorize. Hue 13, 255. Add drop shadow: 2, 2, 50, 5 Black.
6) On our frame layer, take the magic wand tool and click inside it. Selections Modify, Expand by 10.
7) Open element 53. Colorize with same settings as before. Copy and paste as new layer. Selections Invert, delete. Drag below our frame layer.
8) On our frame layer, take the magic wand tool and click inside it. Selections Modify, Expand by 10. Copy and paste close up tube of choice as new layer above the paper fill layer. Resize if needed (I resized by 80%). Selections Invert, delete. Duplicate tube layer. On top layer, change blend mode to Screen and lower opacity to 55. Change bottom layer blend mode to Soft light.
9) Open element 26. Copy and paste as new layer above our mask layer. Arrange to the bottom left. Add previous drop shadow. Duplicate, Image mirror.
10) Open element 72. Copy and paste as a new layer above the fence layers we just added. Position to the bottom left. Add drop shadow. Duplicate, Image mirror.
11) Open element 13. Copy and paste as new layer at bottom left. Duplicate and drag over a bit. Duplicate again, Image mirror and drag to the right side. See tag for placement.
12) Open element 3. Colorize as before, but change Saturation to 167. Copy and paste as new layer. Image Free Rotate, Left 45. Image resize by 75%. Add drop shadow.
13) Open element 2. Copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 75%. Add drop shadow. Arrange below our main tube and at the top right.
14) Open element 76. Copy and paste as new layer. Resize by 80%. Arrange at the bottom right. duplicate and move over more to fill in around the right side. Right click on top layer and merge down. Duplicate, Image mirror. Move to the left. Duplicate that layer and pull over more to the left.
15) Use the eraser tool to remove the parts of the grass that covered her legs/shoes.
16) Resize here if you want to, then add your copyright info + Name (if you're going to make more than 1 tag, just do your copyright info now. That way you can save a blank animated tag and make it easier on yourself to add additional names). If you don't want an animated tag, go ahead and export your jpg now.

Ok, Let's animate.

17) Open the leaves2jk in Animation shop.
18) Back in PSP, Edit copy, merged.
19) Back in animation shop, paste as new animation.
20) Right click on our tag and click Insert Frames, From Empty. 126, 2, 10, carry forward contents of preceding frame. Leave all frames selected.
21) Click on the leaves animation. Ctrl A. Make sure you are on Frame 1 of it, and drag over to Frame 1 of our tag and place the leaves where you want them. I did sort of in the bottom middle.
22)  View animation. If you're happy with it, Save as a .mng so you can add your name and others (if you didn't already had your name). If you have your name already, go ahead and save as .gif.
24) If you need to add a name, go back to the tag in animation shop. Add your name as you normally would. Then when happy with it, copy just that layer and come into Animation shop. Paste as a new image. Repeat step 20 above on your name, so that it has 127 frames. Then Make sure to select all layers on the name, and all layers on the tag, and drag from Frame 1 of name to Frame 1 of tag and release where you want your name to be. View animation and if happy, save your .gif.

Thanks for trying my tut!
